Robert Benmosche, president and CEO of AIG, said: “Our results reflect continued stabilization in performance and market trends. AIG employees are working to preserve the strength of our insurance businesses in a challenging market by working closely with our distribution partners, with third quarter 2009 showing signs of stabilization. Pricing in our commercial property casualty business has been stable.
“At AIGFP, virtually all key risk measures are down significantly and the earnings again benefited from a positive unrealized market valuation gain on the Super Senior Credit Default Swap portfolio. Additionally, we announced the sales of Nan Shan and a portion of AIG’s investment advisory and asset management business, as well as the combination of our Domestic Life Insurance & Retirement Services businesses and ongoing efforts to build their value as part of AIG.”
